Edward filled the position until March 13, 1658 when he too was sent abroad to serve as the Provinical Agent to England. Governor Digges was a silkworm enthusiast and was very zealous in fostering silk manufacturing at "Bellefield" his plantation of the York. In order to firnish the colonists with proper teachers, he imported two Armenians skilled in this industry. During his term in office, and act was passed directing the planting of ten mulberry trees for every 100 acres held in fee and tending said trees, offering 5000 pounds of tobacco, out of public levy, to the person who would first make 100 pounds of wound silk within the colony. The colony was later abandoned but it is stated that the part of the Cornation robe of Charles II was made from silk sent from Virginia. Edward Digges and Elizabeth Page had six sons and six daughters including:
